We were at the first Drypers Little Day Out last year and I wrote about how the kids were averse to crowds at 3 and 2 respectively. Now that they’re 4 and 3, they are not so allergic to people anymore and welcome any opportunity to play, jump on bouncy castles and hop on carnival rides.
So we checked out the 2nd Drypers Little Day Out that was held two Saturdays ago at the Expo.
It was somewhat different from the first one we attended last year, in that, there was a lot more space, there was a lot less jostling we had to do, and it was a lot more cooler to be having carnival fun in air-conditioning comfort.
There was a whole host of activities for learning and family bonding from the get-go till the evening. There were activity stations on the left of the hall which included parent-accompanied music jamming for toddlers by KinderMusik, gym play by Gymboree, and a make-your-own-cupcakes booth. There were also story-telling sessions by Creative Ark on the stage, but of course, none of these were as enticing as those bouncy castles and Uncle Ringo rides that bade Ben and Becks come.
And go they did, the whole afternoon long. On foot and by wheels.
Good thing there were chairs for the adults to sit around.
I was a little disappointed that there weren’t snacks available for the very hungry and tired mother that was me who needed to space out while the children played. Some tea and popcorn would be nice! I remembered having popcorn and candy floss the last time round. This year, I had to walk out to one of those push carts to pay for a super-inflated cup of corn for two-frigging-fifty. Oh well, things I do for my kids – eat so they can play longer.
Still, the kids had fun with Uncle Ringo and were practically still bouncing away when we had to leave. They were like, ‘Can we please go to this carnival again, we like doing this in aircon!’ These are spoilt kids, I say, but I must thank Drypers Singapore for pampering them silly. At least this time we had a cool, lovely Saturday together, and the kids didn’t have to queue in the heat and sweat buckets!
